Aodh Ruadh hosts under 8 hurling blitz

On Sunday we hosted an under 8 hurling blitz in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. Teams travelled from Saint Eunan's (2), Dungloe, and Setanta to compete in the blitz. We fielded two teams and they competed very well. After a slow start, losing their first game, they were undefeated for the rest of the day winning two and drawing two. It was a great day of hurling with over 70 youngsters playing. Thanks to all who helped on the day making it a great success. Thanks to all the parents who catered for all the youngsters and adults. Well done and thanks to Pauric Keenaghan and Kerry Ryan junior who managed the two teams, Eddie Lynch who co-ordinated the event and Peter Horan, Michael Ayres and Kevin McDermott who assisted in the running of the event. Special thanks to our young hurlers who reffed the games, current under 16 and under 14 hurlers Ciaran Rami, Conor Kennedy and Rossa McCosker. Thanks also to Brian Drummond and Ronan Matthews who captured the highlights of the day. Finally thanks to Father McManus for the use of the Rock Hall for changing and catering.
